Word of the Chair
Dear IPEC Europe Members,
I hope you enjoyed a good relaxing summer vacation and that you have managed to recover from all your pre-holiday stress. With this issue of Excipients Insight we would like to welcome you back to the “excipient world” and highlight some important information collected in the meantime.
The development of new regulation relevant for excipient suppliers and users in China and Brazil is ongoing, therefore you will find an update within these pages. Furthermore, we provide an update on EXCiPACT and news from the IPEC Europe GDP Committee. Beside some news from regulatory agencies in Europe and the US we also present some recommendations to read information provided from other sources related to our objectives, which I hope you will find interesting.
Last but not least, please find some interesting events around excipients which will take place over the coming months. Specifically, I would like to mention the GMP seminar in Copenhagen later this month and our 2nd Conference on Pharmaceutical Excipients to be held in Berlin on November 26-27, 2012. Please pencil these important events in your personal agenda.
Enjoy reading and kind regards
Chair to IPEC Europe
